Installation of travertine chiseled edge tile in shower.
 
should it be grouted to the faceof the tile or just below?

You'd have a tough time getting grout to be flush with the surface of the tiles. Grout will be wiped off slightly below the surface with the sponge. It's also desirable to expose the chiseled edges for appearance.

Having said that, although that tile is very dramatic, it's going to be a nightmare to maintain in the typical shower. You sure you want that?

I wouldn't suggest anyone use chiseled-edge travertine in a shower. Is it too late to use something more practical?:)
